This restaurant is off the beaten path but worth the trip. We order take out , but there is an area to eat in and picnic tables outside. Pork is smoked overnight before adding homemade sauce. Beef Brisket melts in your mouth. We have only had fries and Cole slaw for sides but there are other choices.

True Carolina Style BBQ is hard to find in Pennsylvania. Official BBQ and Burgers has nailed it. Great vinegar sauce for the pork bbq. Beef Brisket is really good. Wings and ribs are okay. Side dishes are okay. The grilled cornbread is really good. Service is fast, and restaurant is clean. Location isn't the greatest, but the drive is worth... More

Stopped here on a Saturday evening with my son and family. He kept telling me about this place. What a gem! Had the wings, great smoke flavor and delicious sauce. The cheddar mashed potatoes were excellent. The fries are the best around. Made fresh and excellent flavor. They were very busy with a group of about 50 so the service... More

Stopped here for a late lunch on way to hotel. My husband and daughter shared a rack of ribs. They thought the ribs were good. I had smoked chicken wings and my son had a cheeseburger. They both were OK. The cheddar mashed potatoes were too salty.

I visited this small restaurant with a friend. He ordered a full rack of ribs with coleslaw and cheddar mashed potatoes and I had their large BBQ pork sandwich. Excellent BBQ but really too much since the servings are enormous. A half rack and a regular size sandwich would have been plenty. Seats about 30 to 35 people and you... More

I was told of this place via a friend who raved about it. I was not disappointed. Not a very large place which makes it more personal. First thing I noticed was its cleanliness. The decor was pleasing too. Service was very friendly. There was four of us in our party. Two ordered pulled pork and fries (girls) and two... More

Off the beaten path. Definitely worth finding. We both ordered pulled pork sandwiches and a side of fries. Some of the best fries ever. Pork was moist and really did not need sauce, however the sauce was very good. Service and as fast.

This restaurant is a hidden gemstone. It may not have a flashy outside or a glamourous inside, but the food speaks for itself. I've just had the best pulled pork sandwich North of the Mason-Dixon Line. I went out on the internet to find the best BBQ Ribs in Harrisburg and thankfully found reviews for this restaurant. I went to... More
